Please send me your check and as soon as I will receive it, I will send the anchor...
If, first you want to know what users think of it, have a look at: Testimonial
Well.........that is a few.
And started by a mod for a vendor. Not saying anything wrong with that, just not for me.
How many have you sold to date?
Is there an outlet in the US?
Have you been included in any of the tests by magazines etc?
I also know when starting a business some actually want to get their product "out there". Usually it is with free samples. I am not asking that at all. To me, fronting one for test and approval is a sign of confidence in a product.
I bet when some large group tests your anchor they don't guarantee it's return afterward, but I have not tried to have an anchor tested so it is only what I bet happens.
I also forget sometimes that in this day and age most cannot be trusted to pay on a "hand shake". I am not one of those but there is no way for you to know that. Sorry for my assumption.
As far as religion goes, everyone that I have met that did not like the one they had and was shopping for another actually went and tried others out first, then they paid.
Is there someone you have sold to in West Central Florida that I could contact to arrange a meet up with? I could test theirs at Anclote if they were amenable and it was the size for my boat.
Anyway, I usually am a tough customer (I expect advertised performance) and am tired of being ripped off. I find I need more of a safety net for me
. And even with those I deploy I still lose out frequently.
And I know I said I can't trust my current anchor so why worry about trusting my boat to one that is most probably better? Hmmmm. I guess because the one I want is the one on top. Not in the top 5 somewhere.
Sorry for the ramblings.
Best of luck.
